This painting commemorates the martyrdom of Imam Husayn, the grandson of the prophet Muhammad and the third imam , or leader, of the Shiʿa Muslims. Husayn was killed by the forces of the Umayyad caliph Yazid I (r. 680–683) in the desert of Karbala in central Iraq in 680 c.e. This battle emphasizes the divide between the Sunni and Shiʿa branches of Islam; Husayn led a resistance against what the Shiʿa Muslims believed was the Umayyads’ illegitimate rule. The focus of this painting is...

Although Abbott Handerson Thayer's children (Gladys, Mary, and Gerald, left to right) modeled for this painting, it does not look like a standard portrait, and the children's actual identities may have little to do with Thayer's overall aims for the work. The painting was not intended to convey a particular religious content, but its composition and elaborate frame recall Italian Renaissance altarpieces showing the Virgin Mary with saints. Other elements such as the laurel wreath in Mary's...

Showing the working process of the seventeenth-century landscape painter, van Calraet positions two horsemen on a low rise with a panoramic view of a hill village and the surrounding flatlands. While the artist perches on a portable stool with a sketchbook propped on his knees, his companion attends to the horses and steals a look at the scene as it develops on paper. Such drawing excursions not only trained the eye and hand but permitted the artist an escape from the daily demands of the...

The slightly turned view of the face and the sidelong gaze seen here are characteristic of self-portraits, which were often done while looking in a mirror. This method produces a reverse image of the subject (compare Max Weber's portrait of Walkowitz, also on this screen, in which the part in the hair appears on the opposite side).

In 1863, Albert Bierstadt made an arduous expedition to Colorado in order to gather studies of the region for this monumental painting, executed three years later in his New York studio. For the final canvas, he exercised artistic license—rearranging some landmarks and exaggerating the scale of others—to maximize the visual interest of this Rocky Mountain landscape. The picture toured the country on a yearlong exhibition and thrilled audiences with its dual effects of sublime grandeur and...

By the constitution of nature . . . by the training of the family and school . . . and by the whole current of poetry and literature, woman is educated to feel that a happy marriage is the summit of all earthly felicity. —Catherine E.

The Brooklyn Museum’s collection of American watercolors was begun in 1906, when this work was acquired in a bequest from the Brooklyn collector Caroline H. Polhemus. Coaching in New England was the work of Albert Fitch Bellows, a practitioner and promoter of watercolor beginning in the late 1860s. To demonstrate that watercolor was as significant and as durable as oil painting, he deliberately produced large and highly finished “exhibition watercolors.” This quaint New England subject...

Albert Pinkham Ryder was regarded as a visionary and experimental painter among Centennial-era artists. He often addressed the there of human destiny, as played out In literature or the Bible but he rendered his subjects with highly simplified or expressively exaggerated forms and densely textured surfaces that challenged the visual expectations of his audience. Ryder based this seascape on a poem by the Englishman Robert Southey that recounted the ocean voyage of a medieval king to the New...

For the fiftieth anniversary of Belgian independence, de Vriendt and other artists drew on events from the glorious past to forge a distinctive heritage and cultural identity for the fledgling nation. Here de Vriendt evokes the splendor of chivalric rites, setting a precedent of protocol for the new monarchy. Amid the lavish trappings of the princely household, Philip the Handsome (1478–1506) theatrically bestows the Order of the Golden Fleece on his one-year-old son, Charles (1500–1558),...
